Ok, so I just called and called until I got through. Theyíre having trouble with their phones today, so perhaps I was being harsh with my earlier comments.
Scott at Global West recommended installing two roll pins per bushing (one per side) to keep them from rotating; that seems to be the most important factor.
Scott also said that the primary concern with grease selection is water resistance (and the greaseís wash out properties). He said that if you were in a completely dry environment it wouldnít matter what type of grease you ran, in terms of a petroleum base attacking the delrin, etc. He wasnít familiar with Lucas Red ní Tacky being a water resistant grease, but thatís how they advertise it, and as thatís whatís in every other bushing day balljoint on my car, thatís what Iím going to continue to run.
Hope this thread helps somebody out who finds themselves in a similar circumstance.
